Sunday memo: Fatal stabbing . . . Downtown violence . . . Time change

Fatal stabbing: Seattle police and firefighters responded to a call at 1:23 Sunday morning and found a dead man in Duwamish Waterway Park. The man, in his 20s, appeared to have stab wounds in his torso. Medics pronounced the man dead at the scene in the 7900 block of 10th Avenue South in South Park. Anyone with information about this is asked to call 911 or the Seattle Police Homicide Tip Line at (206) 233-5000.  Anonymous tips are welcome, police said.

Downtown violence:  That’s the lunch topic Sunday at the First United Methodist Church, 180 Denny Way, at 11:45. Seattle City  Council member Sally Bagshaw, Seattle City Attorney Pete Holmes and Seattle Police Department Interim Police Chief Jim Pugel will answer questions from the audience as well as those  submitted ahead of time from residents at the First Church men’s shelter, from Sunday morning breakfast guests and the First Church Twitter and Facebook pages. Rev. Sandy Brown, pastor of First United Methodist Church, said, “We’ve had concerns about police response time and the unwillingness of police to arrest individuals who are trespassing, drunk, loudly shouting late at night, or behaving in threatening ways.”  The event is open to the public. Cost for lunch is a suggested $5 donation per person.

In Sports: The Seattle Sounders lost the first game in the Western Conference soccer semifinals 2-1 to Portland Saturday night, meaning they will need to win by two goals in the rematch Thursday night in Portland to advance to the finals. In another kind of football, the Seattle Seahawks play Tampa Bay Sunday at 1:05 at CenturyLink Field, which means traffic around the stadium and a chance for Seattle’s NFL team to go 8-1.

Fall back? Did you remember to set back your clocks? Daylight Saving Time ended at 2 a.m. Sunday, when it became 1 a.m. Sunrise will come earlier, but that means dark evenings with sunset at 4:48 p.m. Sunday. Daylight Saving Time returns on Sunday, March 9, 2014.
